Good Day, I have a burning question that after many months of searching and trying which lead to no success, in fact I had to switch back to Windows (I hate myself) because of this problem.

When I attempt to use my HDMI connection to a TV, I cannot get any sound, an image will display but no sound. I have tired unmuteing, playing with alsamixer (which did not even have the HDMI sound listed), installed AMD Cataylst 12 Legacy and 13 Legacy. I have also tried the HDMI -0 option in grub.

System Specs;

*Aspire 5252 (X64)

*AMD V1600 Processor

*ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200

** I used Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 12.10, 13.04.

I would love to know how to get HDMI Audio working. Thanks in advanced
